“ABF has a long-standing commitment to recruiting, training and equipping dedicated supply chain professionals,” said ABF President and CEO Roy Slagle. “Backed by ongoing training support, ABF employees are given the power to serve the specific needs of a diverse group of customers. It is always gratifying to have our efforts recognized by a prestigious publication like Training magazine.”
Training magazine recognized the 2013 Training Top 125 winners with crystal awards and revealed
their rankings during a black-tie gala during the Training 2013 Conference & Expo at the Walt Disney
World Coronado Springs Resort. Now in its 13th year, the Training Top 125 is the only list that ranks
companies unsurpassed in harnessing human capital.
“Each year, Training Top 125 applicants raise the bar with the innovation, excellence, and effectiveness of their training programs,” said Lorri Freifeld, Training editor-in-chief. “The 2013 Training Top 125 winners continued that trend, providing performance-driven training responses to significant challenges and achieving compelling results that tied directly to corporate strategic goals. Congratulations to all the companies named to the 2013 Training Top 125.”
The Top 125 includes ranking based on benchmarking statistics such as total training budget; percentage of payroll; number of training hours per employee program; goals, evaluation, measurement, and workplace surveys; hours of training per employee annually; and detailed formal programs. Ranking is determined by assessing a range of qualitative and quantitative factors, including financial investment in employee development, the scope of development programs and how closely such development efforts are linked to business goals and objectives.
